Do you have a favorite holiday food? There are so many that I can’t really pick a favorite. The turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes with gravy, cranberries and lefse are not only the best meal, they are fabulous leftovers too. HAM? Not for Thanksgiving. That just wouldn’t seem right to me. But….my son’s friend always has pizza. Well, must be his favorite.
Our family holiday tradition is going for a Hay Ride ~ Every other Thanksgiving (this year) we celebrate Christmas early at our home. You know, sharing my Daughter and her family with the other Grandparents. There are only nine of us, Grandma & Grandpa, our daughter Carren & her husband Chris with our four grandkids, and our son Jeb. Of course our Newfie, McKenzie, will go with us on the Hayride. We put some hay bales on our trailer and pull it with our four-wheeler through the woods, sing Christmas songs and goof around. Yeah, we have woods by our house. We love it.
Our favorite holiday movie is ELF. We are a family of movie-line-quoters. It’s surprising how often you can fit a movie line into regular conversations. In the movie ELF, when Buddy the Elf realizes the Santa at Gimbles Department Store isn’t the “real” Santa, he tells the child on Santa’s lap, “Don’t listen to him. He’s a fake.” My Husband , Dave, was teasing one of our Grandson’s when our little 4 year-old granddaughter said to her brother, “Don’t listen to him. He’s a fake.” Oh we laughed to hear her quoting movie lines already! We loved it.
Must get to bed, but will be posting more Tuesday.
